USA - June 29th, 2010

Several lakes and rivers can be observed in this image of the states of North and South Dakota in northern central USA. The body of water in the upper left corner is Lake Sakakawea, a reservoir along the Missouri River in central North Dakota. The lake appears golden with sediments in some parts.

Flowing mostly horizontally across the bottom left part of the image is the Cheyenne River, a tributary of the Missouri River in the states of Wyoming and South Dakota. It flows into the Missouri in Lake Oahe, a large reservoir beginning in central South Dakota and continuing north into North Dakota.

The lake and parts of the Missouri River near it appear mostly blue, although the Cheyenne River flowing into it is tan with sediments.
